A win that extended their lead at the top of the table to sixteen points with a game in hand.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were the superior side however faced late United pressure as they defended Virgil van Dijk’s 14th-minute header before wrapping up the win in style in injury time – goalkeeper Alisson’s long clearance setting Mohamed salah clear to spark wild celebrations among supporters currently convinced that long wait is coming back to an end.
Liverpool may have emphasised their superiority as Roberto Firmino had a goal contentiously dominated out by var for Van Dijk’s foul on David de Gea, whereas the United keeper touched Jordan Henderson’s shot on to the post and salah lost an open goal from six yards.
United, who saw striker Marcus Rashford dominated out for a long period before kick-off with a back injury, really had possibilities of their own as Andreas Pereira turned wide of an open goal within the half and Anthony Martial blazed over the highest from an tantalising position after the break.
It came as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side rallied within the last half, however it had been to no avail as salah struck and Liverpool march relentlessly on, with twenty one wins from their 1st twenty two games as United, the sole team to take points off them this season, were beaten.
